Students are strongly encouraged to have completed the RA Training Class, lived in the residence halls for at least a semester and maintain a good GPA in order to be eligible for a staff position.

Residence Life Peer Conduct Board
The Peer Conduct Board is a peer review board made up of representatives from each of the residence halls and apartments. The purpose of the Board is for students to help create positive living/learning communities in college housing by adjudicating and resolving residential conduct issues.  Serving as a Conduct Board representative is a unique opportunity to develop leadership and critical thinking skills, while being of service to the community.
